    Here ..Miles Davis son ?? …just kidding…love the triangular shape of the legs…and of course the modern world of a laptop entering into the “old” world of a Laundromat…(we hardly don’t have these anymore in this country)

  • Thanks Michel I took this very quickly before he saw me so the composition is not so good but I loved the lead in lines of his legs as you so quickly picked up on. . . . . . . This image does not seem so Australian maybe you are right after all . . . . :-) :-) hey and thanks for the fave
